How can I connect to TFS correctly in VS 2017 Community please?

Having bought a new machine (running Windows 10 professional) I Have installed the following:

MS Visual Studio 2017 community
MS SQLServer express 2017
Team Foundation Server express 2015

I find that I do the have the option in VS to "Connect to Team Foundation Server"


I have "Visual Studio Team Foundation Server" set as the Source-Control Plug-in.

I can see my server in Source Control Explorer but cannot add folders or items.

If I go into Team Explorer I can see GIT repos   (dunno how to use these) and I can sometimes add a solution to Source control whereby it is visible in Source Control Explorer temporarily.

How can I connect to TFS correctly in VS 2017 Community please?

Thanks Chinmay,

I wanted to use TFS as I have used it at work for many years and am quite familiar with it.

I may have a look at this, thanks.

I am trying this Azure solution.

OK, I am unfamiliar with it but it seems a bit clunky.
Is there any way I can use the source control explorer in TFS to manage this?

I have set it up with my dev.azure.com server but I can't see or add folders using this.

Any Ideas?
